When Apple launched its unfortunately half-baked mapping solution last year, it wasn't the company's finest hour. However, there's always an upside to every disaster.
By incorrectly mapped 2D imagery onto 3D models, Apple's software generated a set of highly distorted images that inspired by Peder Norrby, founder of graphic design agency Trapcode (opens in new tab), who saw a strange kind of beauty in them. And so he's put a collection of the more artically inspiring on Flickr (opens in new tab).
As anyone who's seen Pixar (opens in new tab)'s Wreck-it Ralph (opens in new tab) will know, glitches are often something to be valued, and in this case Apple's software errors have transformed what would have been fairly mundane scenes into incredibly surreal, mesmerizing and, in some cases, creepy images. Which one is your favourite?
